Awards & Honors

I am joining Prescient to bring the wealth of insight offered by atomistic representations of protein structure to Prescient’s machine-learning toolkit. I served as a Research Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina for the past 12 years having architected the Rosetta3 molecular modeling suite. While there, I developed new algorithms for protein specificity design that lead to the discovery of bispecific antibody mutations in both the Fab and Fc regions. I was a post-doc in the Baker lab at the University of Washington for two years and in the Kuhlman lab at the University of North Carolina for one year after earning my PhD in Computer Science at the University of North Carolina under Jack Snoeyink. I earned my BA from the University of Virginia.
